Dates set for Bonnaroo 2008


NEW YORK -- The 2008 Bonnaroo Music Festival will be held June 12-15 in Manchester, Tenn. Last year's event, headlined by the Police, Tool and Widespread Panic, drew daily attendance of 80,000 and grossed $16.8 million, according to Billboard Boxscore.

The event received a wealth of early Internet buzz this week when a rumor circulated that Led Zeppelin and Metallica would headline next year.

In a statement released exclusively to Billboard, promoters Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment said, "The rumors that are out there about the Bonnaroo 2008 headliners are inaccurate. We're very excited about the lineup that we're putting together for this year's festival. We'll be announcing the confirmed lineup toward the end of January/beginning of February."
